This Lamp Doesn’t Even Need To Be On To Brighten Up A Room

This lamp is rich in color and in history; the design references alone make a brief yet significant history lesson. As part of London based House of Hackney’s collaboration with William Morris, the print is rooted in the psychedelic, non-conformist aesthetic the English designer and artist became known for. And yet it’s also influenced by Diana Vreeland’s Garden in Hell—the unofficial name she gave to her opulent red living room—evident in the print’s Victorian inspired feral flowers that were painted in watercolor. Held up by a cream porcelain lamp stand, the shade looks as if it’s constantly in bloom.
